Ludum Dare 42: Writespace

“Writespace” by larkiniaLena Schimmelflauschzelle & Sebastian Morr.

“[You are] exploring a haunted house and find a strange parchment scroll. When you touch it, something terrible happens: [You are] turned into a typewriter! Use your surroundings and find the magic words to lift the curse! […] [You cannot] type spaces, of course.”

Thanks to its great maze-like level design and the simple, but ingenious concept idea, “Writespace” is a fantastic puzzle game. Your character moves in the direction you type. However, there are some stages, where there just is not enough room to write out a direction, so you will need to find new routes and solutions. The paths can also cross over, making foresightful thinking at certain levels an absolute obligation. If a level gets a bit too frustrating for you, then just take a deep breath, enjoy the beautifully illustrations and listen to the calm background melody. It is not always as difficult as it may seem at first glance. >>PLAY
